What CoolSculpting is... and what it isn't

What CoolSculpting is – and what it isn’t

What CoolSculpting is... and what it isn'tWe’re delighted to be able to offer our clients the latest and most effective treatment in fat reduction – CoolSculpting. There’s been a lot of buzz about it in both the aesthetic and celebrity world, and a lot of people have displayed an interest in it. So it makes sense to spell out what it actually does.

Let’s begin by pointing out what CoolSculpting isn’t: a quick-fix remedy for dramatic weight loss. If you’re overweight and desperately want to lose a lot of fat in one go, you need to consider liposuction, which will suck it out. Obviously, there’s a lot of invasive surgery and downtime involved, and you’ll be expected to adhere to an exercise and diet regime afterwards if you don’t want that fat to return.

CoolSculpting finishes the job you’ve already started

However, if you are already taking care of your body through exercise and diet, but are finding certain areas where the fat just won’t shift – under the arms, in the ‘muffin top’ area and even under the chin – CoolSculpting is the best procedure available.

A completely non-invasive and far less painful alternative, CoolSculpting hones and shapes the targeted areas by safely freezing the fat cells therein, so they are naturally eliminated by the body in the weeks that follow.

Frozen fat cells never return

Obviously, this isn’t a free pass to skip the gym and load up on calories: while you will have less fat cells in problem areas, the cells that are left will still expand if you drop your current fitness regime. But for people who need help with body-shaping with problem areas, it’s an absolute boon.

Gail Porter has talked about her breast reduction surgery

Breast reduction surgery pays off for TV presenter

Gail Porter has talked about her breast reduction surgeryThe recent news story about Gail Porter’s difficulty with her 28J breasts – and her decision to undertake breast reduction surgery – pretty much said it all for us.

While society’s general opinions about breast size might be ‘the bigger the better’, we know that doesn’t generally apply, particularly as we mature, and what may be considered an asset in our early adult years can become a physical and psychological burden as time goes on.

Singled out

In Gail’s case, her issues began as early as nine years old, as she stood out as the first girl in her school to start developing and was immediately singled out for attention.

“I was aware I was different and developing earlier than the other girls,” she said in the Channel 5 show Celebrity Botched Up Bodies. "In PE they all wore vests and I wore a bra. People would ping my bra and call me names, so I was kind of a laughing stock."

‘They are like sandbags’

Even when she reached her twenties and became one of the most successful British models of the Nineties, she was still desperate to reduce the size of her breasts, starving herself to the point of anorexia.

Now in her mid-forties, she has experienced all of the problems of oversized breasts. “They are like sandbags. I am exhausted and my back is getting more curved. Exercise is a nightmare. I love my running but I am knackered by the time I get back and not just from running but from the weight”

The wonders of breast reduction surgery

After a visit to a London cosmetic surgeon, however, she’s had her breasts reduced to a C cup – and she’s delighted with the results.

“My confidence has gone through the roof, I can sit up straight and I can wear dresses and tops without looking pregnant.” She said afterwards.

We congratulate her for taking the decision to boost her self-confidence, and demonstrating the benefits of breast reduction surgery.
